Students of the Year San Antonio

Carson Riley | Carson Riley's Campaign Team

Welcome to Carson Riley's SOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 10, 2019

Thank you for visiting my page.   My name is Carson Riley, and I am a Junior at San Antonio Christian High School.  For the past two years, I have been battling a brain tumor and I could not have endured this fight without the outpouring of love and support of my family, friends, my church family, our community and my medical team. I can never say thank you enough or express my gratitude for God's grace and healing as a result of advancements in treatments made possible by research funded by the public. CANCER or TUMOR is a diagnosis no one wants to hear. During treatment, I was reminded daily of the how severely patients and their families are impacted by the disease. As my friend Mackenzie Lint has written, "Wouldn't it be great if someday there was a cure?" and "Wouldn't it be great if that someday was TODAY?" Please join me in a resounding "Yes"!

I am honored to participate in the 2019 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of this year's young patient hero, Maddie Stanton, who is currently in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

To donate, click on the link to the left to make your donation and remember, every dollar counts.  You will receive a receipt by email.  If you prefer to write a check, please make your check payable to THE LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY and write "Team Carson" in the memo portion and mail it to :

Carson A. Riley, 10103 Pemcrest, San Antonio, Texas 78240
